Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Native American Heritage Month

Each November, the Student Life Multicultural Center sponsors programming for Native American Heritage Month (NAHM) which celebrates and educates students, staff, faculty and allies about the diversity within over 573 Nations/Tribes that were here before, during and after contact.

There will be a variety of events including Alternative Thanksgiving, an alternative celebration to the Thanksgiving holiday, a highlighted event sponsored collaboratively between the Native American Indigenous Peoples Cohort (NAIPC) and American Indian Student Initiatives (AISI). 

For any questions about a particular event or NAHM programming in general, please contact Melissa Beard Jacob at
